A lot of new content is coming to Call of Duty Black Ops Cold War and COD Warzone this month.
A new map is coming to Warzone, new modes are being planned for Black Ops, and the integration of both games into one experience path is being worked on.
That without mentioning the new Battle Pass and cosmetic items that will be coming to the game with the start of Black Ops Cold War Season 1.
And to kick things off, Activision and developers Treyarch are going to be releasing new Call of Duty updates, starting with this week.
To gear up to the launch of Cold War Season 1, gamers will find a couple of patches waiting for them, ahead of the big release.
And with Call of Duty Black Ops: Cold War Season 1 releasing on December 16, at least two patches are being primed.
The first of these, a Call of Duty Black Ops: Cold War update, is being released on Tuesday, December 8, 2020.
Activision has confirmed that this will be focused on improving the current game experience and won’t ship any notable new content.
But it does note that this new patch will prepare players for the integration of Modern Warfare, Warzone and Cold War.
So it will be interesting to see just how big it might prove to be to download across PS4, Xbox One and PC.
No schedule has been provided but the Black Ops Cold War update time is expected to be set at around 6pm GMT, on December 8.
A message from Activision explains: “Over the next week, expect additional communications on this channel, as well as the Treyarch blog, and across social media, as we ensure you are updated as frequently as possible.
“During this time, content updates for Black Ops Cold War, as well as Warzone and Modern Warfare are scheduled to occur.
“The first of these is an update to Black Ops Cold War, which will be available to download on Tuesday, December 8.
“This update brings a host of quality-of-life improvements to Black Ops Cold War, and prepares players for new Season One game content integration, which becomes available December 16.
“Between December 7 and December 16, expect lines of communication to be open as we preview numerous elements of Season One, showcasing the massive expansion of incoming content.
“A pair of content updates will deliver Season One game content for players of Black Ops Cold War and Warzone.
“Once the second content update becomes available in Warzone, Season One will launch simultaneously across Black Ops Cold War and Warzone.”
When it comes to new content being released for Season 1, we know that Warzone is getting a new map, as well as the comprehensive integration of Operators, weapons, player progression, and Battle Pass rewards across Black Ops Cold War and Warzone.
Activision isn’t just adding a new map to Warzone but are also set to launch over 30 new Black Ops Cold War base weapons, and Blueprint variants.
Battle Royale fans will also find themselves dropping into a new Gulag experience, which could mean fighting in a small space that isn’t the usual prison.
